House Breaking

by Marsha Bosshold
(Ormond Beach, FL, USA)

I have recently acquired a two year old Toy Aussie. Unfortunately, she was never house broken. We have two doggie doors which she uses all the time and follows my other Miniature Aussie outside all the time. We still can't seem to get her to understand what outside means. We have never had any problems with our other dogs. But this one just refuses to use outside. We take her outside first thing in the morning but as soon as we get her back inside she's done it again. Any suggestions? She is not a dumb dog!

It would be helpful if you keep her very close to your side, even have her leashed to you. She is like having a new pup -- she just needs to be shown what to do. Take her out every 2 hours during the day and right after she eats. Don't let her out of your sight in the house and you should be successful.
